Yeah, ok well they should be considered. But jscheme is an interpreter within an interpreter == unnecessarily slow. None of them technically are Scheme (no call/cc, blurry picture on full tail calls etc). Kawa's type system makes it rather inconvenient to use Java libraries like Swing (strings in kawa are not strings in java etc). Neither have built in a nice CLOS-ish object system which makes life worth living.

Let me put it this way: Is Full-Scheme-Language+CLOS+portable convenient gui on Windows+Linux too much to ask?

Hmm, just checked out PLT-Scheme. The Gui is so limited it doesn't even have something like a grid or table widget. And for this app it's very visual I need a pretty good set of widgets, including some kind of grid. And the OO system looks more awful to me the longer I look at it, but I guess I could live with it if the gui was ok.

Is there any scheme out there with some decent cross-platform gui support, and works on at least Windows and Unix, preferably Mac too? Am I asking so much?

Not at all. There are several Schemes implemented in Java that should let you do portable gui development easily. Here are 3:

I use Jscheme.
